Text message MEMS ALERTS
All students and employees are enrolled in a text-message ALERT notification system that sends messages with key directives in the event of incidents affecting the health and safety of people on campus/site.
The ALERTS are issued in a specific format that make it clear you are being notified of an emergency (MEMS ALERT, CGCC ALERT, MCC ALERT, GCC ALERT, etc.) The alerts provide directives with which you are expected to comply (see Understanding Key Messages).
It is important to keep your contact information updated in SIS (students) and HRMS (employees)—especially mobile devices and e-mail addresses—in order to fully utilize the MEMS Alert system.
E-mail notifications are an important communication tool in the event of all emergencies. In the event of a major emergency, e-mail will be supported by other communication tools.
